Boxes for Lego GBC Modules
Boxes for Lego GBC Modules are the ways I pack my GBC modules when taking them to shows.
This includes a mix of bespoke cardboard boxes and plastic tubs depending on how stable the module is.
Plastic tubs can be a great way for storing GBC modules and carting them around.
The containers can be air-tight and can be carried through the rain without issue.
These are great during module development as they allow me to pack modules away when I need my workspace for other projects or if I don’t need them they collapse flat.
I have found it is possible to lose small parts when taking modules to shows in this style of storage.
Bespoke cardboard boxes
Bespoke cardboard boxes are great for when your module is stable or you plan on shipping your modules.
My boxes are made up of two key parts an outer sheath that gets replaced as it gets damaged and an inner core that contains all the detailed packing features.
I also try to keep my boxes 24 x18 x10″/60x46x25cm (LxWxH) in size as that size fits neatly into a large suitcase and allows me to fly into shows.
Hand Truck / Trolley
Although carrying boxes is the best way to ensure gentle treatment, it is rarely practical, that’s why having a folding hand-truck/trolley in your kit can really help out.
I have one of these from Amazon https://amzn.to/2DkmWEF (Paid Link Disclaimer), which has both a Cart and Upright mode, although I find unless a surface is really smooth the Cart mode wheels are a bit small and thus the ride a bit rough for transporting boxes.
